Over the River and Thru the Woods..... by 

To Grandfather’s house we go……..Inspired by a Thanksgiving song by Lydia Maria Child. Written originally as a poem, it appeared in her Flowers for Children, Volume 2, in 1844. The title of the poem is, “A Boy’s Thanksgiving Day”. It celebrates her childhood memories of visiting her Grandfather’s House. Lydia Maria Child was a novelist, journalist, teacher, and wrote extensively about the need to eliminate slavery.

I found a road that I’ve never been on off the pig trail that I usually travel between Habersham and Stephens County Georgia. I took 3 photos with my Canon Rebel XTi, -1, 0, 1, exposures, then combined in Photomatix Pro using the Grunge settings, high smoothing, all settings tweaked.
Dedicated it to my Grandmother and Grandfather

I am The Accidental Photographer – anything you see here that you like is a product of my curiosity and creative mind, and the photography I have very much learned by trial and error. Please feel to critique as I have no other way to learn otherwise!

I’ve had my very own “real” camera for 1 year – and I’ve loved every day of them
